Episode 2 – The First Encounter

Welcome to the second episode of the Australian War history podcast. In this episode, we look at the arrival of the Australians in Timor and the difficulties in finding a suitable base. As well as an “edge of your seat” story of one man’s first encounter with the Japanese changing the course of his life. Buckle in, this one really is an incredible story of surviving the impossible. We also uncover some of Uncle Jack’s colourful past.  

Some of the books we use to cross-check facts:
